Out of the Blue

Out of the Blue ★★★★★

"She forgets how young she is,
and she wants to grow up so fast."

Genuinely and exceptionally heartbreaking, my god, and Linda Manz gives -- probably one of the greatest teenage performances of all-time here. No hyperbole intended; not gonna shake this one for a while. If you loved her in Days of Heaven then this is an essential disparity, and -- no, just an essential film in general. A rather cynical but honest, musically-driven time capsule as well as a tremendously emotional narrative. Best to go in knowing very little.
